To date, A-Grade has invested in multiple tech companies including AirBnB, Spotify, Uber, Flipboard, Oscar Health, Warby Parker, Nextdoor and Houzz. In 2014, Kutcher and Oseary founded another fund, Sound Ventures, which has invested in Zenreach, Handy, Gusto, Acorns, Mark43 and more. Kutcher is also the co-founder of Thorn: Digital Defenders of Children. Thorn drives technology innovation to fight the sexual exploitation of children.
